 Keloids?! Not here! Get to know what jewelry metals are safe for your fresh piercings and maybe find some new pieces for your healed ones! We're going to get into what hypoallergenic body jewelry you should be using in your new piercings to avoid Keloids, infections, irritations and rejections! Any of these things can happen when a fresh piercing has not been taken care of! Meaning hygiene routines, regular cleanings, avoiding abrasion on the piercings and of course metal choices! Below are some top choices for piercings and body jewelry for sensitive skin.

Navigating Piercing Care: Stainless Steel and Healing Piercings

One of the most commonly used metals for body jewelry is Stainless Steel. Your piercer most likely wont be piercing you with Stainless Steel, but when you're piercings are fully healed, there are a plethora of Stainless Steel choices to choose from! And they're affordable too! Steel is one of the cheaper options for body jewelry. Fully healed piercings have less of a chance of irritation or infection from Stainless Steel.

People with naturally sensitive skin may feel these irritation affects even after a piercing fully healed. If you experience any irritation or reaction to Stainless Steel, take the jewelry out immediately and replace it with one of the more hypoallergenic options like 14k Gold or Implant Grade Titanium

Looking at generic places that sell body jewelry like Temu or Amazon, most of their body jewelry will be made of this material, many times including Nickel. There are so many choices for every type of piercing in the Stainless Steel material! Unfortunately sometimes you wont find the design you love in Stainless Steel in any other hypoallergenic metal materials. We also recommend staying away from buying anything you insert into yourself from Amazon or Temu!

Golden Standards: The Safety of 14K Gold Jewelry for Fresh Piercings

14k Gold can be pricey but its definitely worth the longevity and comfort of 14 karat jewelry. 14k Gold is available in White Gold if you prefer a silver look. It also comes in Rose Gold and Blackline for a customized look! As you may find there are not as many options for hypoallergenic body jewelry as there is for Stainless Steel, you'll find that all the basic barbells and rings of course come in 14k materials! As your number one Piercing Posse, we also have one of the largest selections for 14Karat Gold Body Jewelry for our Sensitive Skin piercing lovers!
